File aFile = anotherfile.toPath().getParent().resolve(newname).toFile(); to Java 1.6


I am trying to convert a Java application which is implemented in Java1.7 to 1.6
This works fine in 1.7
File aFile = anotherfile.toPath().getParent().resolve(newname).toFile()

Open in new window

but toPath() is not recognized in 1.6

Any fast solution that is compatible with 1.6?

Why not just File.getParent/File.getParentFile?

because there is one line above:
   String newname = simpleDateFormat.format(date)+ anotherFile.getName();

Sorry - i don't understand your point. In fact the code will be simpler than the nio code

String newname = simpleDateFormat.format(date) + anotherFile.getName();
File aFile = new File(anotherfile.getParentFile(), newname);

Open in new window
